EARLE, RUSSELL DENIS
October 24, 1945 – May 5, 2012
It is with great sadness
that we announce the
passing of Russell Denis Earle after a valiant 2 1/2 year battle with cancer at the age of 66. Russ was born and raised in Vancouver where he lived most of his life, proudly working 37 years as a boilermaker-welder
with Lodge 359.
Russ retired to the
Okanagan 11 years ago
and thoroughly enjoyed his retirement with travelling, dancing, socializing with many friends and spending time with his family of which he was so proud. Russ is
survived by brother Bob (Lois) Earle of Nanaimo, son Chris (Alissa) Earle, daughter Lisa (Mike) Schell, their mother
Laurel Kelly, grandchildren Payton, Brooklyn, Kierstin and Oliver and companion Barb Shave. The family would
like to thank the staff of the Cancer Centre of the Southern Interior, especially Dr. H. Docherty for his wisdom and
compassion and also to the staff at the Central Okanagan Hospice House for their wonderful care of dad over the
past four weeks. A memorial service will be held on
Thursday, May 10, 2012 at 1:00 pm at Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Central Okanagan Hospice Association,
104 – 1456 St. Paul Street,
Kelowna, BC V1Y 2E6.
